BOLD AND BRIGHT IN YELLOW

Meanwhile, Lizzo’s show-stopping performance at the VMA’s in New Jersey saw her ditching her floor length-trench coat and exposing her curvaceous plus-size body wearing a bright yellow leotard. She belted out her songs, “Truth Hurts,” and “Good as Hell” as dancers in risqué outfits gyrated in front of a giant inflatable butt. 

The 31-year-old’s powerful performance had the audience on their feet and the likes of Queen Latifah clapping and cheering her on.

“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No I’m not, I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy.’ "

BODY BEAUTIFUL

She has also been drawing attention for her confidence though she hates the idea of being deemed brave just by feeling good about herself. She told Glamour, 

“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No I’m not, I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy.’ If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.”

Lizzo wants people to get rid of the shock learning she celebrates her own body. As far as she’s concerned, she sees herself as beautiful and that shouldn’t be a surprise.
